We’re on the cusp of another great Memorial Day weekend, but before you vanish to the land of hazy outdoor barbecues and shiny red solo cups leaving only a person-shaped puff of smoke at your desk, we hope you’ll take a moment to join us as we take a look back at some of our favorite LA Film Festival moments of yesteryear.
A lot can happen in 12 months. Between last year’s LA Film Festival and now we’ve changed our look, made awards show history and moved the Festival to its new home at the ArcLight Cinemas in Culver City.
And while we’re thrilled to bring the LA Film Festival to the Westside (plus other venues throughout the city—see our full schedule), part of our heart will always remain among the concrete corridors and gleaming glass monoliths of downtown.
So in honor of #FlashbackFriday (which don’t worry, is totally a different thing than #ThrowbackThursday), here are five of our favorite moments from last year’s LA Film Festival, which took place June 10-18, 2015. Ah, memories!
Bonus! Want a sneak preview of the films competing in the 2016 LA Muse category at the Festival? Check out exclusive interviews with the filmmaker on our playlist below, and stay tuned for more!
